I grew up in the Bay and then the valley and came to Chico in 1997 a newlywed and CSUC transfer student. In 2008 I finished my work on my Master's in English with a focus on creative writing (I also have BAs in English and in Asian Studies).
I have primary custody of my four charming, healthy and intelligent children.
I have a new gig as a literary critic for Bisexual Books! I have also been working heavily in bisexual and general LGBT politics and activism
this past year.
I am very left-wing in most aspects of politics, but I have my eccentric little nodes of conservatism. Generally, if you hate peace, women having a right to determine what happens to their bodies, women period, gays, the poor, science, reason, etc. we probably won't get along very well.
I definitely need more exercise. I would love for someone in my life who is down to work out with me, as an encouraging work out partner.
Are you still with me? You're awesome.
Myers Briggs--I am consistently INFP. If you know what that means then you'll understand I'm typically more introverted and quiet than this massive screed suggests. If I've visited your profile without messaging you, it's a safer bet I'm just being shy. Please say hi if you think you might like getting to know me.
Nerdy shit! I have played table top RPGs since my cousin AJ introduced me to D&D when I was eight years old. I still get together with friends on a Sunday afternoon, and with fiends and my elder brood on Thursday evenings and enjoy a good nerding. I also am both a Playstation and X-Box guy but I play intermittently--going weeks without playing any video games, followed by 2-3 day binges. I know more about comic books than most people have any ability to really grasp.
I love to sing. You can often find me singing at karoake in the Empire Club bar in Durham on a Saturday night.
Right now I spend a lot of my free time with my kids. They mean the world to me. But the world's growing less and less fun without some more adult companionship to go with it.
